How-To change line width setting mid-print

Recommended Posts

Posted · How-To change line width setting mid-print

Is it possible (I'm sure it is, everything is with Cura) to change the line width value mid print? I.E. if I have an item with 500 layers that prints at 0.8mm layer width, can I change it to print at 0.4mm from layer 400 until the end?

    The short answer is: you can't.


    The longer answer is: you can change some settings via the Change at Height post processing script, and many more by using a cutting mesh in the per model settings tool, but not all of them.


    You can change the Wall Thickness with the per model settings tool though. Perhaps that is what you meant to do?

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
